MotoGP - Le Mans - What a race!

After the last one in portugal was a boring procession... racing was back with a bang! :smile...   Great racing ...drama ... and Rossi back on the podium. :smile..

 

Awesome stuff ...:smile...

 

 

Harsh on Simoncelli though..... and shame that Pedrosa bust his collar bone.:wacko: 

 

But great to watch .... roll on Barcelona.

Good race.......

annoyed at the post race coverage from the BBC.

I was watching about five minutes behind (paused due to the kids playing up). Just as VR was about to be interviewed "coverage continues on the red button".

Obviously being 5 mins behind I missed the Rossi interview.

Then just as Simoncelli is about to give his interview 'sorry, we're out of time, You can see the interview with Simoncelli on the website later in the week'.

Crap

Harsh indeed

I'm still not convinced that Simoncelli was at fault.  It almost as if Pedrosa stood the bike up to force Simoncelli wide.

Question for me is - is Rossi actually on the way back or just the beneficiary of other people's misfortune?

Lets see the data

Yup from my biased and unprivileged vantage position looked like Danni might have decided to stand the bike up.. would be good to see whether he was still progressively braking or had eased off.. paid a heavy price though.
Did we see an arial shot in the 'Extra' coverage that I could not get on the red button ?

le mans

Simoncelli is my favourite rider, he is awesome, I don't care people complain he is too agressive.

for someone so big he is awesome, he makes that bike look so small, knees all over the place.

lorenzo as talented as he is still gets on my tits, he thinks its all about him, such an attention seeker.

Brilliant stuff

Everyone was racing everyone, was excellent racing, and I wouldn't have thought that Pedrosa had broken his collar bone the way he was gesticulating when he came off :wacko:

Ride through......

thats going to open a can of worms evrytime a move is made like that, I bet Simoncelli's team will be looking for similar penalty's whether there is an off or not! Lorenzo pulled a similar move earlier on in the race that sat Dovi up and cost him time though he stayed on.
